London start in 2007?
Tour organizers will be meeting with London mayor Ken Livingstone today. London is interested in being the departure point for the Tour one year, with the prologue around the city's streets.
Leblanc minimised questions on the possible logistical challenges of an over-the-Channel leg of the race, pointing out that the Tour de France has already had an island send-off, in Dublin, Ireland in 1998.
If London's bid comes to fruition, it will be the third time in the race's 100-year history that the Tour has made stage escapes to England (after 1974 and 1994).
